The 15 Best Batman Statues Ever Made
Comingsoon.net has compiled a list of the 15 Best Batman Statues Ever Made in celebration of Batman Day! Check it out below!
Bruce Wayne AKA the caped crusader AKA the Dark Knight AKA the “World’s Greatest Detective” AKA Batman made his first appearance in Detective Comics in 1939. Since then, the character’s success on the page, the small screen, and large have made all of his titles household names. The story of an orphan boy who grew up and used his inheritance to save the citizens of Gotham as a vigilante resonated, and continues to resonate with billions.
To say Batman is iconic is an understatement. In many ways, he is the be-all and end-all superhero—he’s just a dude. A hyper-intelligent, physically-fit dude. Like us, he didn’t come from another planet or gain powers in some freak accident, and that makes us feel capable—maybe we can stand for justice as well? Regardless, this day, Batman Day, is celebrated all across the globe to honor perhaps the most timeless comic book character of all time. Here’s to 81 years and 81 more! That said, we’ve compiled a list of the 15 best Batman statues ever made so that every September 21 you can take these puppies out, put them on your mantel, and salute the Dark Knight.
